"The use of continuous line in my work is allegorical to spiritual divinity and universal energy- that which flows through and connects all things. The line becomes a structure that is then engaged in slowed down meditative mark making actions. Reduced to flat, simplified elements of line, shape, and color, I abstract figures and space to emphasize a state of emotion. Bold and vibrant narrative scenes explore themes of transformation, healing, and connection- to one's self and to each other. "
